HP slimline 7320 needs larger video card

I checked out the specs on your computer, and it does have a single upgrade slot, of the PCI variety. Don't confuse this with PCIE, which is totally different.
To make it fit in your PC, some video cards come "low profile ready", which means the circuit board is narrow enough, and they include a narrow bracket for mounting in the slim computers. They leave it to you to switch out the bracket, which is usually a couple of screws. Pretty easy to switch out.
There is two major drawback to this suggestion:
  1. PCI is not the preferred connection for graphics cards (it has a slower interface, and thus lacks pretty much all more powerful cards).
  2. You may have to remove an existing card (a modem, or network card, perhaps) to make it available.
If you are a gamer (you want to play 3D games on it), I would hold off and save your pennies for a more capable machine. This is not it.
Otherwise, there are several acceptable (not great, but OK) low profile cards out there. Look for low-profile and PCI in the description. I know newegg has a bunch of different models available in the $35-175 range. Just make sure whatever you get is low profile & PCI.
That should get you going. Let me know if you have other questions.

Befor buying a new video card must read first

here are some things you should know before buying a video card for gaming.

If you're thinking of replacing your card because you're having problems running a certain game, make sure you have the latest version of the drivers for your current graphics card. You will find the latest drivers for your card available for download from the manufacturer's Web site.

For the purpose of gaming, two developers of 3D graphics card chipsets have come to dominate the market: nVidia and ATI. While there are many video card manufacturers, most of them build their cards around chipsets designed and supported by one of these two companies. Certain games will run a little better on one chipset than another - something you might want to consider before deciding which way to go.

A long time ago the Advanced Graphics Port (AGP) replaced the Peripheral Component Interface (PCI) as the standard way to connect the graphics card to the motherboard. PCI-Express is a new and faster form of PCI, which is replacing AGP as the standard for graphics card slots. PCI-Express offers roughly twice the data transfer rate of 8x AGP. You can't put a PCI-Express card in an AGP slot or vice versa, so your motherboard will have to have PCI-Express if you want to use a PCIE card.

256 MB of memory is, at the time of writing this, about the minimum for a gamer looking for a new card. When it comes to memory, more is always better, although it does raise the price of the card. 128 MB cards are still common, but it's worth looking for 256 MB or even 512 MB of memory if you want to run games at high resolutions.

As the term implies, framerate is an indication of how many frames per second your system can display. The rate not only varies from game to game, it is also affected by the game's settings and the action taking place at any given moment in the game. Framerate is, in some ways, the ultimate test of a video card's speed, so a lot of sites compare cards on this basis. The fastest cards in this regard are usually the most expensive as well.

While you may need the latest version of Microsoft DirectX (DX) software to run a game, this doesn't necessarily mean that your card must be fully compatible with the latest version of DX, you simply won't be able to use certain graphics features. Most new games support cards that have built-in DX 9 features, but will still run on a video card from the DX 8 era. When in doubt, look for the specific chipsets that the game you want to play supports.

This has been a standard feature in game-oriented video cards for quite a few years, but there are still PCs around that don't have it. These are usually systems with Intel graphics integrated into the motherboard, commonly used in budget laptops and desktops designed for office use. If your desktop doesn't have hardware T&L and you have an AGP slot available, adding a newer video card is an option.

Although, as noted earlier, AGP will soon be history, here are some basics if you're working on an older system. There are several different speeds of AGP, but anything other than 8x is rare. Both the slot on the motherboard and the video card will have an AGP rating, but in most cases these ratings do not have to match for the system to work. The system will operate at the speed of the lowest rated component. For example, if your motherboard supports 8x AGP but your video card will only do 4x, your system will operate at 4x.

hope that helps!

Installing an mic geforce fx5200 128mb pci-e card on my emachines t3408, and it seems that the pci slots on my computer are reversed from the pins on the card. please help!

It seems to me that your computer has an AGP slot which is a much older type of interface. AGP is much older and they no longer use them.

From the model you posted, you have 1 AGP video card slot and 2 PCI expansion slots. there are some but very few companies that do make cards for PCI that will be much better than an emachine onboard video.

But your computer will not support PIC-E

Does a Foxconn 633 m02 motherboard have pci express slots?

You have a Foxconn G33M02? then you have PCI express ports, so you'll need to look at pci express video cards to fit on your pci express x16 ports (the long pci-e port, probably blue colored) on your motherboard.

I own a Dell Inspiron 531S. I'd like to get a new graphics card. I currently have a NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430. I don't want to spend too much for this but I'd like to run my Second Life game with...

When you install a new video card you must disable the onboard video card by going into the bios setup. Below I have listed the requirements of Second life game. e 531 does come with PCI-E slots so make sure you buy a VIDEO card with PCI-E Walmart sells some pretty decent priced Graphics cards. pretty much any pci-e card you buy new in walmart these days will be fine for this game.

PC Minimum System Recommendations:

* Internet Connection*: Cable or DSL

* Computer Processor: 1.6GHz Pentium 4 or Athlon 2000+ or better

* Computer Memory: 512MB or better

* Video/Graphics Card**:
o nVidia GeForce FX 5600, GeForce 6600, or better
o OR ATI Radeon 9600, X600, or better

Graphics Card Problem

im sure that is AGP, because we have the same video card on my other computer. your PCI slot is for sound cards, link modem, etc.. whenever your playing games make sure that you put the video option in to medium or low because that starts the heat of your video card when you use it into the limit. Try to cool the video card if its happening the heat again by using a fan and aim it to the video cards.

Others are overclocking their video cards to push the capability of the video card over the limit. their using a cooling fan or a tube like to maintain the temperature of their video cards. hope that helps

PCI socket on 4 yr old emachine

Here are the specs to your machine:
click the specs tab. It seems you have only PCI slots in thos machine, so you cannot use an AGP card (the other type you may have seen). Video cards are clearly marked PCI or AGP.
Does this machine not have a built in video port already? Or do you just want to upgrade?
